The Society for American City and Regional Planning History (SACRPH) presents
The 13th National Conference on Planning History
Oakland, California, October 15-18, 2009
New Media Sessions
New media projects are cordially invited on all aspects of urban, regional and community planning history. Projects of oral history, film, audio, web, interactive maps, virtual exhibits and other new media/non-paper formats concerned with research, presentation and/or teaching of history are sought. The question, “How does the media influence and open up opportunities for what we do as historians, architects, and planners,” should be considered. Particularly welcome are projects addressing architecture, planning, and landscape design in the Bay area and the West; environmental sustainability, nature and the metropolis; historic preservation; real estate; regions; public art; and studies that consider race, ethnicity, class, gender and sexuality in planning and the shaping of urban form. The ideal presenter will have a work in progress that he or she wishes to share and gather audience input on both content and form. Presentations on recent completed projects are also welcomed.
Proposals may take the form of a 25-30 minute conventional presentation (to be integrated into full session), 115-minute full session, 115-minute full screening of film or other creative work, or poster presentation. Presenters not proposing a full screening are welcome to show short clips of their work within the allotted time frame. Poster sessions will operate in an ongoing a walk-up-and-explain format. Presenters will have access to a projector and be required to bring their own computers or other specialized equipment. Please include in your proposal a discussion of tech needs and the equipment you plan to bring.
